Spring clean in autumn!

Today I am re-posting this post about my sunroom to show you my favourite cupboards! I'm joining MyFavouriteCupboard@NoteSong and PorchoftheMonth@GypsyBrocante. Come and have a look - they are great!!

Yesterday I finished cleaning my sunroom! I have about 20 ladies coming for lunch next Saturday for DNo 2's baby shower (how exciting!!) so I thought I must spruce this place up!
I have a lot of pretty china  in the room so I started washing all of that - what a job but it looks so beautiful after it is done I just love it all the more. This room started off as a verandah (porch to you Americans!) and was filled in with glass doors and windows. I have redecorated this room many time - in fact the sofa has had many face lifts from brown to dark green to blue and now to pretty pink and green stripe.

I have stripped all the sofas and washed all the covers along with the cushion covers so it's looking good!!
The chairs were originally natural cane colour but a few years ago I gave them a coat of Antique White - much better I think.

This is my gorgeous Robert Gordon china which I have shown you before in a tablescape - so pretty!

This is another little cupboard that I gave a quick facelift to. I have this between the door and the window - such a tiny spot but this fits there perfectly.

This old cupboard houses some of my blue and white china collection - I couldn't bear to pack it away when I changed the room colour so I just added a couple of pieces of pink to the display and it seems to work quite ok.

Cushions are a favourite of mine - the rose fabric on this one matches perfectly with the print I have on the wall which I showed you last week. Such a lucky find.

More roses!!!  I'm so lucky Mr FH really doesn't care how much I paint the house or move things around (as long as he doesn't have to do it!!) so I get a lot of enjoyment out of redecorating and changing things.

 This really is one of my favourite rooms where I spend a lot of time.

It looks lovely! Did you cover the cushion yourself? I have the foam and the material, but there are a lot of cushions and I am afraid to bite off more than I can chew..:(

Have a wonderful shower..many blessings!

What a gorgeous sunroom and your Robert Gordon chine is beyond words. I just found your blog and will be following, I live on a farm, but am still trying to figure out where to start, beyond my yard. Thanks for sharing.

The pink in fabrics and dishes is lovely. If that is 'some' of your blue and white, I must say I am extremely jealous ;) That is quite the collection. The room will look lovely and very welcoming to your guests.
